Jefferies Orchard is located approximately five miles north of Springfield, Illinois (three miles north of Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport) just off Route 29. We are open daily from approximately late April to mid-November with fresh seasonal produce. Call ahead to check what's in season.
Our farm and market are still owned by the Jefferies Family. We've been growing fresh produce for over 75 years (and farming for over 150)! We specialize in produce picked in season. We grow real food for real people.
Community Supported Agriculture
While we don't offer weekly or monthly "boxes" by subscription, we're still a small, locally- and family-owned farm that greatly appreciates your support. Every time you make a purchase at our market, you're helping us to sustain our farm and our family, and to ensure that our produce is available for the community for years to come.
Quality comes first, and for those of you who've been enjoying our seasonal crops for generations, you know there's nothing better than truly fresh asparagus or tomatoes and peaches that have been picked at the peak of ripeness. You know there's something special about having to "go outside or stand over the sink" to eat a tomato or a peach because they're so juicy. But we also do our best to keep prices as reasonable as possible. And, whenever possible we share our bounty in many ways, including special deals on canning tomatoes, or quantity discounts on apples and other produce when possible.
We're so fortunate to have a beautiful location near the Sangamon River that has been in the family for generations. Which means that we don't need to travel to the local farmers' markets for our neighbors to enjoy our wonderful produce. We hope you'll make the short, scenic trip to our store, and we look forward to seeing you.
